How to show cookie categories pre-checked on your cookie banner?

Written by NelsonLast update 6 months ago

You can select to show cookie categories pre-checked on your cookie banner. Go to your CookieScript user account > Settings > Behavior > Banner control, where you will find the COOKIE CATEGORIES PRE-CHECKED checkbox.

If Cookie Categories are shown on your cookie banner, this option will make all of the cookies pre-checked by default.

If you leave the checkbox unchecked, the website user will see unchecked cookie categories. This option is compliant with most of the privacy laws.

If your cookie banner shows cookie categories pre-checked, this will lead to the following cookie compliance results:


Cookie compliance




Compliant. CCPA does not regulate it.


Compliant. LGPD does not regulate it.


Non-compliant. The use of pre-checked boxes does not amount to a clear, positive act of consent.
